For your consideration is this vintage Devils Diciples Levis denim jacket vest. This is your opportunity to own an impossibly rare piece of vintage motorcycle club history. Do not hesitate, because this will be the ONLY example you see come up for auction!
The Devils Diciples is a notorious outlaw motorcycle club with an established foundation in Fontana (Southern California [hence, "SoCal"]). The gang also developed chapters in Alabama, Arizona, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio. Although famously rivaled by the Hells Angels, some would argue that even though the Devils Diciples are lesser known, they are perhaps the fiercest and most respected motorcycle club of all time. With a bond of brotherhood stronger than blood, and a respect for the gang's legacy beyond that of family, it becomes very difficult to find any authentic article of attire, at least, that is what would seem logical...
I purchased this jacket vest many years ago, and put it in the farthest corner of my storage due to the stench, which has since subsided. In fact, if it weren't for me moving it might have taken another 10 years until it was finally re-discovered.
The condition of this cut is poor but intact; and you wouldn't want it any other way. Complete with remnants of make-shift leather stitching, poorly attached patches, fading, and blood stains, this vest has more mystique than the Shroud of Turin. The "FTW" patch which is commonly found on the top right back corner appears to have been attached to the front right bottom corner, but has since fallen off.
I would strongly advise against wearing this vest in public.
The measurements are: shoulder to shoulder = 17", pit to pit = 18", under collar to bottom = 21". The jacket vest fits like a men's adult Medium probably size 38, which is a great size.
